Graduation/Senior Info


Senior Prom

The Senior Prom will be held at the Long Wharf Marriott, Boston on June 1 from 7-11PM. Only seniors in good standing may attend the senior prom. CRLS rules and regulations, as described in the student handbook, are in effect at the senior prom. Please check with your Dean of Students regarding “good standing” status.

Library Books
The due date for all library books for all seniors is TBD. If you are unsure what books you may have checked out, you can visit us in the library and ask a librarian at any time the library is open.

Senior Materials Collection & Final Plan Forms

Seniors will need to return all borrowed materials including textbooks, library books, athletic uniforms & equipment prior to commencement. Additionally, in order to receive their cap and gown they will need to complete their “Senior Final Plans Form” and submit it to their guidance counselor.

Seniors do not need to return their Chromebooks. ICTS will disconnect them from the CPS network after graduation.

Graduating students have the option of returning their school issued Chromebooks to the Student Helpdesk (Falcon Fixers). Students who opt to keep their Chromebooks will need to email the CPS Helpdesk and let them know.

NHS Members
NHS cowls will be distributed to members with their cap and gowns. NHS members who do not want to keep their cowls may return them after the ceremony.
